remember when the bush tax cuts first came out and tom daschle and dick gephardt were the minority leaders. they didn't have anything. they didn't have the house and they didn't have the senate or the white house. yet they came out with this ridiculous show for the press with visual aids. they had to "meet the press" outside because they had a brand-new lexus and they had a rusty muffler. that is what he is going to get, the rich guy. this is all you are getting and basically they said there is nothing in it for you if you are middle class or poor. this is only for the rich and we know that is not true. most people bought it and in fact to this day, most republicans i talk to its unbelievable. forget about the truth. is the perception of the truth. it's amazing. terms like gridlock, a came from them. the last congress was the worst congress ever because they got less done. not quality, quantity. >> guest: very good points. look, the democrats attacked the reagan tax cuts and said they would be awful and unfair and of course we got the longest movement in american history and they attacked

about it president reagan and president bush, 43, are the last two american presidents who pushed comprehensive immigration reform. so, you know, immigration reform is -- has to deal with economic opportunity and growth. and that is very consistent with republican economic policies. so it's something that where i disagreed with governor romney's position on that. but we've got to move forward. and certainly as a committee, we did call on the republicans in congress to come up with a solution that's comprehensive, dealing with immigration reform. we're not trying to say, look, we want to tell republicans in congress what exactly needs to be in the legislation. but we have got to deal with this issue. >> one thing, henry, from the rnc report about that exact issue saying young voter, increasingly rolling their eyes with what the party believes. when someone rolls their eyes at us, they're not likely to open their ears to us. that's again to younger voters. another thing important to younger voters is the issue of marriage equality. we had senator rob portman come out for marriage eq

, and president george w. bush only visited during his final months in office. the president, however, is dogged by the perception that he's pulled toward the government of america's strongest ally in the middle east and by the criticism that his outreach to improve relations with the muslim world has been at israel's expense. during an interview on friday with me for "press pass," israel's ambassador to the u.s. sought to downplay any rift. >> there is a u.s./israel relationship which is deep, which is unbreakable, and that's a message of assurance to the people of israel at a very turbulent time in our region and a message to the people of the middle east. >> mr. obama will visit the grave site of theodore hertz el, the father of modern zionism, meant to send a strong signal to the region that this president stands behind israel as its right to exist as jewish state. also on the agenda, a visit to the holocaust memorial and the church of the nativity in bethlehem, a revered site for christians. stay with nbc news for comprehensive coverage of the president's trip starting wednesday. >>> coming

budgets in the last 40 years. wasn't under president reagan or the first president bush or the second president bush, but 1998, 1999, 2000 and 2001. under president clinton and then president bush came in and did a big tax cut in 2001. put us out of balance for a long period of time. and during the period of time when the budget was imbalance the last four times out of 40 years, the revenue was coming in, was higher than it is in any year in the republican budget that's before us now. and what that tells you is that their budget approach is trying o seek balance on the backs of everybody else. by really cutting into those important investments that have helped power our company, by violating important commitments to seniors. and in the end, by raising taxes on middle-income people. why else would they not have joined democrats in sending policy statement to the ways and means committee that says when you go about eliminating tax preferences, don't hit middle-income taxpayers in the process. in fact, mr. chairman, if you look at the mortgage interest deduction, for example, mortgage in
and mining call singh, who advised president george w. bush. this was hosted by the washington institute. it is about 90 minutes. >> good afternoon. good afternoon and welcome to the washington institute. i'm rob satlof, the director of the institute. i'm happy to welcome all of you here today. just at the outset if i could please remind you, cell phones off please, not just on, on vibrate but off completely. this event is being live streamed for our thousands of fans around the world. this event is being broadcast by c-span. so everything you say can and will be used against you. so but bless do turn your cell phones off. we're fathered here today because president obama is off for the inaugural overseas visit of his second term and he is going to the middle east, going to israel, to the west bank and to jordan. his itinerary is very different than the itinerary of his middle east trip in the beginning of his first term. we'll hear more about that. and i think the mission of this trip is very different than the mission of that inaugural trip of his first term. we're going to hear about
. george bush doubled the debt and extent of the military greatly. we need to cut the military. we need to raise taxes to pay for that. i would like to point out to the congressman the united states constitution actually states that the congress has the power to raise taxes. the very first thing it gives for that purpose is to pay the .ebt for the united states i wish republicans would actually start upholding the constitution. host: you made your point. let's get a response. guest: you are right, we need to pay our debt. is too much? taxes is 50% of what one makes too much? i would suggest that it is. that is basically where we are right now for many individuals in this country. we believe that the way you get this economy rolling again so that jobs can be created and we we can get people back to work ,s -- get people back to work still pushing eight percent unemployment. we need to make certain that we can get the economy rolling. one of the ways to do that is the provost tax policy, bring taxes down so people can spend their money and invest and spend the way they see fit, not the wa
the first george bush was president, and we were saying, they're saying maybe he's not quite getting the arrival of yeltsin. i said why do we get richard nixon to write a piece for us. they said he will never utter the "washington post." and by gosh, he wrote of these. it was a pretty good one. i came in and i said we need to work up we called his office the next morning. i can't believe i spoke to. he was up all night working on it, and so we ran it. apparently, i was told it had some influence that brent scowcroft like the peace and gave it to president bush and it was a part of his policy. >> another question over here. >> thank you very much. my name is terry stevenson to either question about during the time of the watergate hearings and so the information came out as far as nixon burglarizing the office in so many other things i'd do if it makes you indeed impeachment or not, when we go into the future, patriot act, subsequent legislation, how much of what nixon got in trouble for now would be legal? >> well, not, burglary -- [laughter] >> i'll tell you what we know about presi
years ago tonight that then president george w. bush announced to the nation the war in iraq had begun. >> my fellow citizens, at this hour american and coalition forces are in the early stages of military operations. to disarm iraq. to free its people and to defend the world from grave danger. >> shepard: a war that lasted more than 8 years, killed almost 4500 u.s. troops. wounded more than 30,000 others. and officials estimate more than 100,000 iraqis are dead. rick leventhal rode along with the u.s. marines who led the ground invasion. he is live in our new york newsroom in new york. >> 10 years ago tonight the marines we were with had already opened fire at the guard post. we had incoming mortars scream over our heads and watch over a berm as the aerial assault began on the hill.

for the war seems to fall down party lines. 66% of republicans continue to stand by the bush administration's decision to invade, but 73% of democrats say the military campaign was a mistake. i'm joined by retired army colonel and medal of honor recipient jack jacobs. former pennsylvania congressman patrick murphy, first veteran of the iraq war to serve in congress. great to have both of you today. >> great to be with you. >> we've been talking a lot about iraq because of chuck hagel's confirmation and many republicans, we see the polls, they also still believe in this war in spite of the fact we know there were no wmds, in spite of the fact they've discounted certain ties between saddam hussein and al qaeda. i'm wondering, jack, how you think that all of this, the appointment of hagel who was obviously a republican, but who opposed the war, how it all plays into our current state of affairs. >> well, everything is tainted by sequestration, about the loss of funds, lots of ominous views about what'll happen to our defense posture because of cuts should they come in great pro-fusion in the n
the eight years under president bush, but they act white that all this debt -- they act like all this that happen when president obama was elected. it just amazes me that they want to get rid of medicare, social security, and give tax cuts to the rich. we found outwar war wes cost $6 trillion, were lied into. i do not understand why republicans did not admit they are the ones that ran up the debt under president bush. that is why we are in the shape we're in now. host: of the amendments put it n so far, the senate passed amendment that would eliminate the 2.3% medical device tax. they also defeated an amendment that was the ryan budget proposal from the house. a couple of tweets. daniel says -- host: a couple more calls here. joseph on the republican line. i am 69 years old, and i have seen republican, democrats in power, and i get upset with these republicans because the democrats worked bush and a lot of time they went along with him just because he was president. the republicans need to work with president obama, and they see that when bush was in charge, it did not work, and
and tony fratto, former white house deputy press secretary under president george bush. good to see you. >> hi, alex. >> karen, three years later, what is the status of the health care law? >> well, the status is that it has partially begun to be implemented. i think we're seeing in places where it's been implemented, i was reading a piece in kentucky, looking at how it's starting to not just change people's lives but under some of the rules like the 80/20 meaning that 80% of the money has got to be spent on actual care or you get some money back, that's already taken into effect. that's already working. people with pre-existing conditions, children with pre-existing conditions, that's already starting to work. lots of things are already starting to have a real impact on people's health care. at the same time we know that as you pointed out, there are many who are still trying to fight it either by trying to repeal it, which is not going to happen, or what we've seen at the state level are some of these efforts either to say they're not going to take the medicaid money, the expansion of
an example. you remember when the bush tax cuts first came out and daschle, tom daschle and dick gephardt, they were the minority leaders. they didn't even have, they didn't have anything. they didn't have the house, they didn't have the senate, they didn't have the white house. yet they came out with this ridiculous show for the press with visual aids. they had to meet the press outside because they had a big, brand new lexus, and they had a rusty muffler. see, that's what he's going to get -- the rich guy, that is -- this is all you're getting, and basically they said there's nothing in it for you if you're middle class and poor. he's only doing this for the rich. well, we know that's not true, but most people bought it. in fact, to this day most people, i mean, most republicans i talk to, it's unbelievable. you know? i mean, forget about the truth, it's the perception of the truth. and, you know, it's amazing, i mean, you know, terms like gridlock, it came from them, you know? i mean, like they said the last congress was the worst congress ever because they got less done. not quality,
, nothing close to it. people said president bush was irresponsible. he should have been more wary of the grand promises that the economy would never have a recession and that things are going to go great. he should have. the next to the last year when he was in office, the budget deficit was $167 billion. it had dropped from a higher figure in his time in office. his last year was $450 billion or $460 billion. president obama has been in office four full years, starting his fifth, and his deficits have been averaging 1,200,000,000,000 dollars a year. we have never, ever seen anything like this before. it has surged the united states of america and our democratic colleagues don't have a plan that will put us on a sustainable path in the future. if we come back out of the economy, we restrain the spending growth just a little bit, we can balance the budget. that's what we ought to do. and again, a goal of balancing the budget is not just some frivolous goal for political reasons. the goal of a balanced budget is that we would put us on a sound financial course. it will mean we have
to the first president bush and welcome. >> good to be here. cheryl: this was planned by the white house and mr. president to show the spanish speaking population of this country that he cares about this issue. this has got to point to the immigration debate encompassing washington right now. your thoughts. >> well, what does america need more than anything else? it needs robust economic growth and aggressive job creation. there's nothing about his background that would suggest he can make much of an intellectual or intelligent decision in the job market. i think he shows us that he speaks spanish but he spent a career either in government or as a civil rights lawyer or as an academic and nothing about his background suggests that he has ever hired anyone, that he's ever worked in the private sector where the jobs are going to come from so perhaps he's been put in the cabinet for some periphery refasons but it's a disappointment that the labor secretary obviously isn't part of an economic team that is charged with economic growth. cheryl: can you be more specific with the holes in his resume? >
actually had interest payments that were over 3% of gdp under bush one and then they came way down. people said, oh, look at these scary numbers about rising interest payments, they, the scenario we're supposed to be afraid of is the things we go back to the way they were 20 years ago, which doesn't seem all that scary. >> let's look at that. we have a chart with precisely that. you see three lines. this is the net interest payments and this is a fairly modest, modest rate increases. and what you see here is nonentitlement spending. you see how they get, they come down. what i want to ask you, as a liberal, don't you worry that if entitlements continue to go up and nothing is done about it, what is going to happen is, forget about defense, but look at nondefense discretionary spending. this is education. this is, all the kinds of programs that you're passionate about that are naturally and necessarily almost going to get squeezed as entitlement spending becomes larger and larger. >> they're going to get squeezed, again, if we look beyond, if we look past and we look to the year 2025, 2030,
, mounting debt. we have a former media spokesperson for george w. bush and a democratic political consultant to hillary clinton for president. mersaides and richard, welcome to both of you. americans are sick of this. look at the debt clock this. thing keeps whizzing up. the debt is mounting. every sunday, i show this. it has gone up another trillions, it seems, theres and multi-millions. mercedes, how do we stop that in its tracks and make it go the other way? >> we can't stop it when you have the budget plan that senator murray has pushed through. 50 of all, because it has such little support from american voters. for example, we saw a poll saying that only 28% of likely voters supported the senator murray plan. the majority of americans do believe that we need to cut the dev silt by $5 trillion, need to balance the budget and cut spending with no need for raising taxes to get the economy going and this is the way we ensure that our recovery -- we could really have an economic recovery, not by the budget which has been passed, which is the budget to nowhere. >> if the americans want it. h
. they are doing it. sender rand paul said right at cpac the gop of all has grown stale and moscow. jeb bush last night and again if you haven't read it, jeb bush in "the wall street journal," began to offer a dramatic vision of a better, more dynamic, more inclusive republican party that doesn't act in at th the age ofa lightbulb, that doesn't stand a pioneer of the future and that does understand there is no red and there is no blue. there are 311 million americans who deserve a party that wants everyone of them have a dramatically better future. that ought to be the republican party. [applause] >> we are not the anti-obama movement. we are for the american future with greater safety, freedom and prosperity for all. we are for empowering individuals, not empowering bureaucrats. i think there are dozens, and you can see in the as ever in a newsletter two weeks ago on pioneers of the future versus prisoners of the past, there are dozens of new areas we are about to break and we about to be dramatically better opportunity, and the city and both parties is literally blind to the great potential of
sink hole under a home that swallowed a man named jeff bush as he was sleeping in his bed on february 28th. >>> a couple hundred military deaths paid attribute to the marines killed in a training exercise last week. none of the veterans knew any of the seven marines who died but the vets say they must still honor their brothers in arms. they were killed last monday when a mortar round exploded during a training exercise at a western nevada weapons depot. >>> we're hearing a chilling 911 call in the fatal shoot of course a 13-month-old boy. >> woman told police two boys tried to rob her and shot her baby while she was pushing him in a stroller in brunswick, georgia on thursday. 17-year-old demarcus and a 14- year-old boy have been charged with first degree murder. elkins aunt claims he is innocent but police say they are not looking for any other suspects. >>> denver police are confirming a former colorado inmate is linked to the killing of a state prisons chief. investigators believe 28-year- old evan eastbound else is connected to that shooting. >>> there may be a new trend brewing i
. this is interesting for a variety of reasons. first of all, in 2004 when he was the architect for george w. bush, you know, legend has it that rove tried to drive a wedge issue on the issue of same-sex marriage of course coming out against it at that point. now he says the republicans could actually have a candidate who supports it, though, let's put the question to connie mack mary bono mack what do you think? possible? >> well i certainly this issue -- i said this weekend to some friends that it's not a matter of if, it's a matter of when and how. and i think really we're starting to see the debate more about definition. so when you talk about marriage, marriage is a religious institution that i think we ought to protect. and marriage should be between one man and one woman. but i also believe that we ought to afford the same rights and privileges to people who love each other and want to have a family with each other. they ought to be allowed to do that and get all the same rights. >> in california we've had prop 8 which started, people didn't know could they or couldn't they marry their loved one
are in the bedroom and not the bedroom -- border. and the press is allowed to paint president bush as a conservative for gun-control who put everything on a credit card, the press gets away with painting him as a big belt buckle conservative when the reality is that that line in the san has always been true from the press. it is an uphill climb. 86% 76% democrats. when you say that experiences shaped the world, i agree, but if we get out of the bedroom -- and the press asks a conservative, personally, on abortion, they would say would be for personal responsibility. host: -- guest: you touch on two important aspects. with respect to getting out of the bedroom and into the board room, i would agree with you. as a fiscal and social conservative myself, i make the case -- i am much more libertarian, i guess, which is why i am excited to see what brand paul is doing in terms of redirecting -- rand paul is doing in terms of redirect recover station. we create this inherent conflict by saying that we are for individual liberties and freedoms and the ability to make choices in your life, but on the other h
budgets and the one that george bush inherited from bill clinton. in each case taxes as a percentage of the total economy were over 20%. in this republican fantasy land budgets are balanced with revenues at 19% of the economy, yet meeting the needs of 78 million more seniors and a infrastructure deficit that is growing as america is falling apart. clearly this is not remotely possible if we are going to enjoy anything like our current quality of life. there is a real world intersection of budget saving opportunities with potential areas of agreement. health care reform is one. but not just by shifting the burden to seniors and disabled as the republicans propose in their fantasy budget. my home state of oregon is the middle of an exciting demonstration of how to squeeze out the waste we all know is there and realign incentives. instead of the empty ritual of pretending to repeal obamacare, let's work together to accelerate reform for all americans. if the oregon experiment works, and frankly many of these efeshencies by the way are already achieved in other parts of the country and w
that president bush's economic adviser was fired for predicting that the war might $200$100 billion to billion. he was off by at least a factor of 10, at least, and we will hear from our second panel, maybe much more than that. ask,ly, we are going to from the u.s. point of view, what are the geopolitical, military and strategic lessons in so far as we can see them from this near and far vantage point. what are the take homes from this conflict? a reallyssembled superb roster of experts to address these issues, beginning with this wonderful first panel. knows onuch each of us and conflict firsthand, looking around this room, there is a huge amount of wisdom here , but i know that all of us will go home a good deal wiser. thank you for joining us. i am really thrilled to turn over to the moderator of our first panel. everyone in this room and watching on television is probably familiar with his work. 10 years ago, he was covering the beginning of the war for kuwait city, and then in baghdad. he later wrote "imperial life in the emerald city" -- one of the best of many books about the war come a
the famous case you know, suzanne, and i know, because we covered it, bush versus gore. and here they are finding themselves on the same side of the issue of same sex marriage. ted olson, icon of the conservative movement talking to him about this, you know, he's been ost ri sized by many on his side of the aisle and he says he's doing it because it's a matter of human dignity. and both men believe this is kind of the last civil rights fight of their generation. and so you're going to be seeing them together. ted olson will be the one arguing the case. he's argued 60 times, suzanne, before the court. he's won 44 of those times. so it will be interesting to watch. >> that is dpoing to be a fascinating case. gloria, tell us a little about you have a special coming up as well. >> we do. >> you've spent a lot of time with these guys. >> it's really a story of how this case all got started. you'll recall, suzanne, when president obama was first elected in 2008, you covered that race, he was elected but then proposition 8 also passed in california. and that outlawed the right for same

, under the bush administration, they had this idea to take the postal service and the postal service alone and no other agency in federal government, and make them prepay their retirement systems 75 years into the future. let me give you an example of what that means that means they're prepaying the pension for someone who is not born today, for their retirement a half century down the road. no oragency, no private company would do that. but we are requiring the postal service. so when you hear the postal service is losing money, almost every single dollar of those losses is due to the prepayment of this unusual requirement that only the postal service has to pay. so what happens, the response? clearly, i think this is an attempt to try to privatize the system. to take away a system that i think so many people have relied on for so many years in this country. but this is what we see happening system of recently, we saw there was a move to go from six-day delivery to five-day delivery. when you start to cut back on delivery, it has a real ramification on people, on what they're going
us two cnn contributors the former obama special adviser van jones and former bush speechwriter david frum. here is what it would take to repeal obama care. you understand this completely. maybe they could do it in the house where the republicans have a majority but in the senate you would need 60 votes. even if they got 60 votes, the president would veto that legislation. you need two-thirds overrides in both houses to override a presidential veto. you would need 67 votes in the senate. and that's not happening. >> that's not happening. the republicans are motivated i think by two concerns. the first is this is a very narled statute heading toward a lot of trouble that the financing mechanisms are inadequate. and what we're going to see is it is going to offer very per verse incentives to people to game the system. the subsidies aren't sufficient to cover the cost of health insurance policies. meanwhile the penalties for not buying one are quite small so the incentive for people locked out of the market is wait until the last possible minute and then take advantage of the ability to
of george w. bush's presidential campaigns. >> i appreciate her encouragement that i ought to go home to texas. i'd be ennewsed if i ran for office to have her support. but i don't think i'm particularly good candidate, sort of a balding fat guy. and second of all, i'd say if i did run for office and win, i'd serve out my term. i wouldn't leave office midterm. >> ouch. our question, in a i'm threat cal match-up, who wins over the republican faithful, karl rove or sarah palin? >> sarah palin. simply because she's just more likeable. you may think she's an idiot, you may think she has no idea what she's talking about, but there is something about her charisma that attracts a large number of people and causes people to want to listen to her and be attracted to her. karl rove is right. he does not have that appeal. and worse yet is that he has a lot of egg on his face from 2012 including the meltdown in ohio. so if you go past the last victories, last thing we saw from karl rove was a total melt dunn. >> he's right, it's sarah palin. karl rove seems to know his place and he knows it's beh

i learned working with george herbert walker bush is that the most important thing in the world is for people to trust america and to have a feeling that america will be there in dealing with the national security issues. on both counts, this president obama has lost. >>steve: it is curious, because if you're just watching -- if you saw the president with netanyahu yesterday, you would think they're getting along great. in the past, for all intents and purposes, it seemed like they hated each other. the fact that b.b. netanyahu used to go to school with mitt romney, that didn't help things. but there is a quote today that apparently a senior israeli official said there was -- quote -- "a tacit agreement apparently between both leaders, if not coordination, to engage in a very intense public display of affection." >>alisyn: good. fantastic. if president obama's visit to israel helps them smooth over the tensions they had in the past and forge some sort of friendship, fantastic. even if they're faking it, sometimes that works. >>brian: would you be talking to alisyn if she wasn't
about mr. ailes he advised ronald reagan when he was running for president and george h.w. bush. what kind of impact did he have on those two men? >> they both won so i guess it was a positive impact. they brought roger in as a debate coach for reagan. that's a cool thing to be the debate coach for the great communicator. it's like being mohammed ali's body guard. >> all of rogers competitors want to know how he does it how he was able to create this channel in particular such a short time to become the cable news leader. did you get a sense of what drives him and what is his success story? >> rorntion is a very competitive guy. he was competitive when he was running the mike douglas tv show when he was in his mid 20's. he was competitive as a political consultant and he wants to win. i think shep smith said to me the only thing he wants to do more to beat cnn is for cnn to lose to him. >> clayton: i think he has done that if you look at their ratings. the book is "roger ailes off camera.

the bush and administration. i congratulate you on your promotion. you always had a reputation for intelligence and professionalism and hard work. it is good to see you here today. bitnt to follow up a little on some questions that mr. maria asked you earlier. ask you early. -- earlier. they came from various federal districts or were held in various districts. i understand from your testimony that you did not consult with individual united states attorneys in those federal districts when you were releasing detainees who would have come from them. is that correct? >> that is correct. most of the detainees that we received on the criminal side are coming from state and local custody, just the sheer volume. >> but still, the united states attorney's are the chief attorneys in the districts and they would not be your attorneys in each of the districts. >> on criminal prosecution matters, of course. >> and on civil matters. >> yes. although they do not get involved in administration removal matters. >> but they would for the instance if you had a boc claim or some sort of claim wit
was involved in a decision to dismiss three of the four defendants in a lawsuit the bush administration brought against the new black panther party. will the republicans run with that? will they be in opposition to his nomination? >> they'll run with it to some degree. that black panther case doesn't amount to much. there are other controversies as well, aggression sill proponent of voting rights and there was an article criticizing the way he criticized interpretation of disparate impact of federal policies on minorities compared to other americans. tom perez is a liberal no question about it. the president is determined to have people who both ideologically as well as demographically and ethnically reflect his coalition and his approach to governance. i do expect tom perez used to work for ted kennedy and used to be a local official here in this washington d.c. area as montgomery council member and will get flak from republicans and ultimately to be confirmed. >> and strong support from the labor unions and hispanic groups. john harwood from washington. >>> would you want to get rid of your b

republicans, including the top advisers to former presidents george w. bush and former governors and members of congress have all signed on to a legal brief arguing in favor of a constitutional right to same-sex marriage. notably, ohio senator rob portman emerged as a supporter of same-sex marriage last week, making him the only sitting republican senator to publicly support the right to marry for gay men and lesbians. republicans aren't the only ones having a change of heart. the majority of americans, 58%, think it should be legal for gay and lesbian couples to wed. supporters up 21 points since 2003. kenji, on the one hand, we've got what is clearly a growing tide in consensus around marriage equality. as soon as i find myself in a political allied relationship with rob portman, i say okay, let's just reevaluate what's happening here. talk to me. what does a win mean? if portman is on my side. i'm thinking maybe this marriage win is in fact something different than what i thought it was. maybe an imperative toward a certain kind of you must be married, you must sort of follow this set of
congress, including the deal on the bush tax cuts that were made at year end. $2.4 trillion of deficit reduction over the next ten years. and all also agree that $is.8is- that $1.8 trillion was gutting expenses and a little more than $600 billion of this was revenues achieved through the year-end bush tax cut deal. so everwhelmingly what has been done thus far has been in spending cuts rather than new revenues. it is very important for us to know that. it is very important for folks to realize that democrats are willing to make are hard calls about spending. we've done it already. but the question before this body and the question before the house now is going forward, what do we do to achieve additional deficit reduction that's consistent with having a growing economy? and the approaches of the senate and the house on this could not be more different. the house approach basically says that all additional deficit reduction should be achieved by cutting spending. by looking at one side of the balance sheet. i do not know of a business, i do not know of a family, i do not know of other u
, reagan, bush. is the party doing enough to support the rising star governors once they get past that state endorsement process? >> well, i mean, that's the plan for 2013 and 2014. um, i know that state parties sure do a lot of work and, obviously, the rga does. you know, we have a different party too. i mean, you know, i don't know, 15, 20 years ago maybe more there budget an nrcc, there wasn't 10, 20 different super pacs and 527s. we have a big group of organizations that are involved in getting republicans and conservatives elected. so my, my job is to put together not only the best infrastructure and data and mechanics, but we've got our primary system that needs to be looked at. and i think overall messaging. but for the most part, a lot of players out there that are doing a lot of this work. the rnc has to play a role in promoting governors. they're the innovators. their balancing budgets. they're getting things done. they're leading the way. and we're going to be involved. but there's also a lot of different groups now that are involved in this same activity. >> be questio
an took us on a path of fiscal soundness. it was totally reversed in the bush years, our republican colleagues didn't say a word, they said no problem, it's the appropriate percentage of g.d.p. new york problem with the deaf zit, they never complained about it. but now with their initiatives, the ryan republican job killer budget is making matters worse. in terms of reducing the deficit. because it deprives of our economy of the very initiatives that would create growth. the education of our people, lifetime learning, for the american people. investments in education, as i said, nothing brings more money. investments in jobs, infrahave structure, energy, innovation, absent in the ryan republican job killer budget. medicare, so important to the stability of america's working families, the provisions in the affordable care act that affect medicare have already demonstrated that we're halting the rapid increase in cost of health care spending system of that is what has enabled the c.b.o. to say with more promise that we can use a different baseline to reduce the deficit and that has be
people in danger. wake up, colleagues. please wake up before it's too late. the fact is the bush administration found -- we got this through documentation, that climate change was a threat. the c.i.a. has found that climate change is a threat. the defense establishment has found that climate change is a threat. the only place that doesn't seem to get excited about it is right here in a bipartisan way in the u.s. senate. we know, again, temperatures are continuing to increase. the draft national climate assessment january 11, 2013, said heat caused by climate disruption is especially harmful to our children. now, i want to talk to colleagues who might just be listening -- they might not be because it is 7:20 at night. but if they are, you all say you want to protect our kids. you all love your children and your grandchildren and your nieces and your nephews. according to the american academy of pediatrics committee -- and i think we have a chart on that -- anticipated direct health consequences of climate change include injury and death from extreme weather events and natural disa
